Over the upcoming weekend, some of the European top teams are gearing up to compete for the national cup trophies in Italy, Poland, and Germany.
In particular, the Coppa Italia A1 in Italy will present a significant challenge, with two of the CEV Champions League quarterfinalists, Sir Sicoma Monini Perugia and Itas Trentino, battling it out to claim the championship title. They are expected to put in their best efforts to emerge victorious.
Perugia, the current titleholder of the Italian Cup, will face Piacenza in the upcoming match scheduled for Saturday. Following that, Trentino will take on Milan. The final match of the Italian Cup will be held on Sunday, determining the ultimate champion of the competition.
Like in Italy, the Polish Cup is also set to feature highly anticipated matches. The current Polish Cup champions and CEV Champions League winners, Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kedzierzyn-Kozle, will be vying to defeat Zawiercie and secure their spot in the final. Additionally, Jastrzebski Wegiel, who reached the quarterfinals of the most elite club competition in Europe, will be striving to emerge victorious against Rzeszow and earn their place in the final. The ultimate showdown will take place on Sunday, with both teams determined to claim the coveted cup.
Berlin Recycling Volleys, one of the German teams in the CEV Champions League quarterfinals, will also compete in the final match of the national cup this Sunday. VfB Friedrichshafen, the previous champions of the DVV Cup, did not qualified to the final after losing to Duren in the semifinals. This presents a great opportunity for the BR Volleys to claim the tournament championship and become the new titleholders. SSC Palmberg Schwerin and SC Potsdam will compete in the women’s DVV Cup Finals. Will Potsdam be able to reach their first cup victory, or will Schwerin seize their eighth cup title?
